Everyone was going to be punished because Adam sinned. But because of the good thing that Christ has done, God accepts us and gives us the gift of life. Adam disobeyed God and caused many others to be sinners. But Jesus obeyed him and will make many people acceptable to God.
When you sin, it is not the "Devil who makes you do it." The Bible says that it is Adam's fault! Adam chose to disobey God and from that First Man you and I inherited the "fallen nature" that prefers sin over righteousness.
The solution to the sin problem is not self-control or self discipline. It is not laws and rules. Sin is not cured by swift and certain punishment. All those things have been and continue to be tried by those who don't know Jesus. They all may seem to work at first, but none of them solves the problem of sin.
There is an answer, and that answer is Jesus Christ. When you give your heart to Jesus, He changes you and by His Holy Spirit enables you to walk without sinning! All you must do is listen to the Holy Spirit and do what He says! Then you will be always ready to stand before the Throne wrapped in the Righteousness of Jesus!
"Lord Jesus, everything good in my life comes from You and is because of Your sacrifice. I will praise You forever for Your marvelous gift to mankind! Amen."
